A China tea scented with the smoke of wood fires.
A speciality of the Fujian Province of China. The leaves are rolled and dried, then placed into bamboo baskets and smoked over wood fires. This imparts the distinctive smokey aroma and flavor for which Lapsang Souchong is known. It makes the perfect partner for a traditional English breakfast or fish dish.
Use a warmed teapot and add one teaspoon of tea per person and an extra "one for the pot." Add freshly boiled water and infuse for 4-5 minutes. Serve on its own, or add milk.
The enjoyment of leaf tea comes not just from the ritual of brewing in a teapot, but also in its extra subtlety of flavor.
